The Complex World of Old-growth ForestsBook - 2016
We all know what an old-growth forest is. Or do we? Most of us have little idea of the wonders that unfold in these rare ecosystems. Joan Maloof understands ancient forests inside and out, and tells their fascinating story in Nature's Temples. From salamanders and micro-snails to plants that communicate via fungi, learn the life forms and relationships that make old-growth forests unique - as well as why human attempts to manage forests never duplicate nature's handiwork. Nature's Temples invites anyone who has ever felt the power of an ancient forest to discover what makes these sacred places irreplaceable.--COVER.
